The little winglets on the wing tips don't inspire much confidence.

Seems to be much like the WWII Messerschmitt Me 163 Komet, which crashed A LOT.

That youtube clip looks like something out of "Thunderbirds are Go!". You had to have a lot of guts and a sense of humor to be a fifties test pilot.

I'm going to guess that "mid-aid" is a typo for "mid-air".
